Well, here's a follow up response one year later to my informative notice of Cubase 11. There's going to be a major change in how Steinberg deals with their s/w licensing. All new licensing of their new versions coming out will not implement the use of the usb dongle. However, the dongle isn't going away anytime soon, it'll just be slowly faded out over time as Steinberg gets this new dongle-less phase more into play.

Obviously they're skipping all 11.5 versions and going straight to 12, how 'bout that.

I just activated my version of 11 pro today (after sitting on it for two months) and will qualify for the free upgrade to 12 pro once it's released next year.

I can’t wait to get rid of my dongle. I always upgrade my Cubase and Absolute versions as they are released.

My favorite cubase features are
1. The metering. It is the tightest meters you get out of the box. Sometimes I can get by in Ableton by using my console 1 meters for gain staging.
2. The swing engine is good for fine tuning your grooves. Don’t get me wrong the MPC can groove, but so can cubase. This is helpful since I run a VDrum setup now and sometimes I want to capture the performance and then make tweaks.
3. The mix console is so intuitive especially for sends and VCA groups.

Yeah, I'm waiting to see the how this will pan out in the long run.
